The most common problems with these heaters are the control board, and the pressure switch. The pressure switch is much cheaper,and easier to replace.Try jumping the switch first(but don't leave it that way). Also be sure the line isn't clogged by turning the pump on for a second while the switch is removed. You should get a steady stream of water. Electronic parts are usually not returnable, so exhaust all other options first.

You might have a much bigger issue than the temp sensor. When the heater is running hold the "pool" or the "spa" button for 12 seconds. This will show the exhaust temp, if the temp is rising above 375 degrees with in 1-2 mins then your not getting the heat out of the heat exchanger.
One other thing to check would be an external by-pass. If you have an external by-pass make sure the by-pass is set correctly. Opened or closed to much can cause the problem your having.

Have a 3.5 year old Jandy Aqualink RS 4 --- the air temp is reading correctly (78 F) but the pool temp is reading (201 F). What could this issue be? Pool sensor gone bad? If so, how do I repair or replace...


It is most likely not a bad reading on the on the display.

One culprit of a false temp reading could be:
If the temperature sensor is installed after the heater and the circulation pump is clogged or failing, this would allow super heated water to reach the temperature sensor and give you that reading. However, most pool/spa heaters have a high limit switch that would shut down the heater @ 150 degrees F. So this is also unlikely.

The most reasonable answer is to replace the temperature sensor.

If you refer to page 22 in this manual http://www.jandy-downloads.com/pdfs/Allbutton_manual.pdf
you will see that the temperature sensor is installed on terminals 5 and 6.
Trace these wires. They will goto a thermowell (which holds the temperature sensor) either in the pool plumbing, or to a temperature sensor in the heater itself. Temperature sensors when in the heater are located typically above the inlet/outlet header. There will be some disassembling required to access it in this case.
If it is in the heater and you need more help, e-mail me @ adamh@newconceptchem.com

Please take the time to give me a positive rating on this post if I have helped.

Thanks
adam

Temperature on the display is not the actual temperature. Heater will not come on


Without more info like what the temp reading is and what the actual temp is it is hard to say. The first thing that comes to mind is temp sensor has gone bad. This is located on the side of the water manifold and the wires run back to the control board. You can order one with a model number from your local pool store. These are very easy to replace I hope this does it.

Temperature reads 125 degrees.


I am not sure if you have solved this issue, or not, but just in case. The problem is the Thermister, or temp sensor. That will need to be replaced since it is reading the water temp at 125.

The Thermister is located on the manifold, left hand side, between the first two bolts. It is pretty easy to change out and this will correct the problem.
